Review: Organix Macadamia Oil Intensive Moisture Mask

When I saw the new Macadamia Oil line from Organix at CVS, I nearly dropped everything that I was holding and had a freak out. I LOVED the Macadamia Nut Oil that Sara gave me (that I had my eye on FOREVER) and I was hoping that some other brand would have something with macadamia in it. In fact, I went searching through random beauty supply stores' hair aisles to see if they had the Macadamia Nut brand or anything including that ingredient.
Macadamia Nut (which is probably not their actual name, but that's what I call them) is a brand I first saw on AllThatGlitters21's channel and she swore by it and it was probably the first hair product I actually coveted. It's available at Ulta, but as you all know, Ulta isn't a convenient place for me to go because it's about an hour and a half away. After using their hair oil, my hair had a very positive response to it and because of that I wanted to get more, it's just so expensive (which makes me appreciate Sara's give a thousand times more)!
So again, when I saw the Organix display, I almost threw a party, right there, in the middle of CVS. 
I picked up both their hair oil and their hair treatment because I've tried the Moroccan Oil version of both of those products and enjoyed them quite a bit. Today I'm just going to discuss the hair treatment.
Organix makes a Hydrating Intensive Moisture Mask in all of their hair therapy lines (Moroccan Oil, Cocoa Butter etc). It's a deep conditioning treatment meant to only be used about once a week. You can use it as a mask by putting it in your hair, letting it soak for about 20 minutes and rinsing it out.
What I like to do is in the shower, get a scoop of this (a dollop actually) and mix in a little bit of either argan oil (of any brand) or the Macadamia Nut Oil by Organix and let it sit while I tend to everything else in the shower, then rinse it out at the end. It's like a baby mask for a little bit more nourishment. I don't do it everyday, just once every 3 washes or so and my hair loves it!
This particular line of Macadamia Nut Oil smells very sweet and flowery. It's obviously perfumed that way so it smells pleasing to the general public. The Macadamia Nut brand oil smells a little more like almond oil and is less artificially scented.
The consistency of the mask is not uber thick, just kind of like a more creamy conditioner. Not watery but not like a heavy product. 
I believe I got this for about $8, and it can be sold for between $8 to $10 depending on where you shop and when it's on sale. I think I got it on sale as an "introductory sale" that brands sometimes do. 
I personally love this product and will for sure be purchasing it again. I do like it more than the Moroccan Oil version of this mask by Organix as I feel like my hair responds to it more positively.


  1. Target sells the macadamia nut brand for half the price ulta sells it for!

    1. you know what, i just saw that and died. i bought like all of it.

  2. I had the same result. The Moroccan oil ones are good but the Macadamia oil mask is amazing. It transforms my hair!

  3. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with
    hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
